About Rust

pub fn hello() -> &'static str {
    "Hello, World!"
}

Rust is a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. It aims to bring modern language design and an advanced type system to systems programming. Rust does not use a garbage collector, using advanced static analysis to provide deterministic drops instead. It accomplishes this via the concept of ownership.

Rust's core and the standard library are intentionally minimal; batteries are not included. Rustaceans are instead encouraged to add libraries, called crates, to the language by sharing them on crates.io.

Rust is most frequently used for applications where speed, performance and stability are essential. The Awesome Rust list collects examples of Rust projects, which include CLI tools, ORMs, operating systems and games. Regardless of what you build in Rust, it will be fast and memory safe!

The home page for Rust is rust-lang.org. Rust has excellent documentation at rust-lang.org/documentation.html. Newcomers should start with "The Book" located at doc.rust-lang.org/book/.

Exercism is a great website

What I like about it is that I am able to solve the challenges in a TDD way working in a environment that I am familiar (my own PC not a browser IDE) and the cherry on the top of the cake is that I have access to code reviews.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

I love Rust and C and use them at my day job in automotive. I work with Embedded software but I'm also reasonably familiar with systems programming as well

I've been playing with Rust as my hobby language of choice since version 0.10. Before that, I was using C++ for a lot of my side projects.

Rust is a revolutionary language that is growing and improving fast. I am proud to have been promoting Rust in my own company leading to incredible results. It covers low-level programming while offering high-level abstractions which for systems developers, it's a blessing.

Using a mixture of C and Rust code at work for bare metal and linux embedded programming since mid 2017. Having done 10+ years of professional Java programming before. Also in love with Clojure, Haskell and functional programming in general.

My primary professional language is Python, which I like for its flexibility and expressiveness, but I also enjoy using Rust because of its power and high-quality tooling. I'm a former CS professor.

For me, Rust and Cryptography has been a perfect match. As I grow my own company, I plan on sticking with Rust and want to help encourage people to pick it up.
Fun. Challenging. Interesting

I love real-world, usable examples. I'm a huge fan of being able to help others to make something work how it should with maximum performance. I especially love Rust and have written a tool called BrewStillery in it and GTK-rs.
